Mr. Eric Edwards reports


Trimetals Mining Inc. has released the final results from drill holes completed as part of the 2017 program on the Gold Springs project in Utah and Nevada.

Summarized results for these holes are listed below;
 Hole NumberFrom  (m)To (m)Thickness* (m)Gold (g/t)Silver (g/t)
E-17-016   7.6      89.9  82.3          0.63      11.6        
including  7.6      35.1  27.4          1.19      17.3        
And        12.2     22.9  10.7          2.02      25.2        
E-17-018   115.8    166.1 50.3          0.23      4.3         
*True width is approximately 80-100% of Thickness.            

The drill holes are located in the South Jumbo resource area and were designed to test the continuity of shallow, higher-grade material (hole E-17-016) and for a possible parallel higher-grade zone within the hanging wall of the Etna structural trend (E-17-018).

Mr. Eric Edwards, President & CEO of TriMetals commented, “The discovery of these grades in drill hole E17-016 demonstrates the continuity and strength of this higher-grade zone that has been traced now for over 450 meters along strike. At a depth of just 12.2 meters down hole, these results confirm the near-surface nature of the Jumbo zone.” Mr. Edwards continued, “The South Jumbo zone remains open to both the north and south, and will be the likely primary exploration target for our next drilling program.”

Drill hole E-17-016 is located east of hole E-16-003 and targeted the developing shallow, higher-grade gold zone to confirm continuity within this area. This zone is defined by a postulated structural intersection which controls a linear body of higher-grade gold and silver values. This higher-grade feature is depicted in the figure located at: In addition to the higher-grade gold intercept, hole E-17-016 displays continuous mineralization from 7.6 to 89.9 metres down hole, averaging 0.63 g/t gold and 11.6 g/t silver over this 82.3 metre interval.

Previous drilling suggests there are two possible deeper, parallel higher-grade zones to the east, and Hole E-17-018 was the first attempt to locate parallel zones to the west, within the hanging wall portion of the main Etna structural zone. Hole E-17-018 was successful in that it demonstrates mineralization continuity into the hanging wall. Additional drilling will be needed to define the gold distribution within this area.

Mr. Edwards further commented, “TMI plans to explore and expand these zones to the north and south where we can trace outcropping gold mineralization, but where we have conducted little exploration drilling in the past.”

Qualified Person

The Qualified Person on the Gold Springs property is Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration {A –} North America of TriMetals Mining Inc. and he has reviewed and approved the content of this press release. The Qualified Person verified the data for its geological reasonableness, checked all the inputs and verified the analytical data through an analysis of the blanks and standards submitted with the drill-cutting samples.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Approximately 10 kg of RC chips were sent to the laboratory for each 1.52 metre drill interval. Fifteen percent of the samples submitted by the Company are blanks or standards for QA/QC purposes. In addition, the laboratory also includes duplicates of samples, standards and blanks. The results of these check assays are reviewed prior to the release of data. All RC drill sample assays are also reviewed for their geological context and checked against the drill logs.

Assay Method

TMI Assays were performed in Sparks, Nevada by Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories, an ISO 9001:2000 Certified laboratory. Gold was analyzed by fire assay of a 30-gram sample with an AAS finish with samples assaying greater than 10 g/t re-assayed using a 30-gram sample and a gravity finish. All other elements were analyzed by a four-acid leach ICP method coded MA300.

We seek Safe Harbor.
